Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Naturally large man with long limbs and good overall weight distribution. Scheme versatile. Flashes a powerful bull rush to push the pocket. Possesses just average burst but shows surprising straight-line speed once he gets going. Untapped potential.

WEAKNESSES: Moore has just average quickness off the snap and plays higher than scouts would like, negating his strength, at times. He lacks top athleticism and needs a clear lane to close on the ball. He suffered a neck injury against Oklahoma (2012) which caused him to be carted off the field and be sent to a local hospital for precautionary purposes. Medical reports will be important

COMPARIES TO: Kevin Vickerson, DT, Denver Broncos -- Like the former Michigan State standout, Moore possesses the length and strength to warrant development as a defensive tackle for the 4-3 or as a five technique defensive end.

Player Overview

The 6-5, 335-pound Moore is a Montgomery, Alabama native who signed with Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide out of high school. He redshirted there in 2009 and registered six tackles in four games as a backup to Marcell Dareus and Josh Chapman in 2010.

For violating unspecified team rules, Moore was placed on indefinite suspension in March 2011 and the big man elected to transfer to East Mississippi Community College (EMCC), where he helped EMCC win the NJCAA national championship and emerge as a highly regarded junior college prospect by posting 38 tackles, including four tackles for loss and three sacks.

Moore established himself as a key component up front for the Longhorns in his one season in Austin, but wasn't the dominant force some anticipated after he'd turned heads throughout spring practices.

Because of his length, strength and the fact that he has been successful inside as a 4-3 defensive tackle and outside as a 3-4 defensive end, he could draw middle- to late round-consideration from NFL teams willing to gamble on his upside.

"I want to thank Coach Brown, Coach [Bo] Davis and everyone at Texas," Moore said in declaring for the 2013 NFL Draft. "I enjoyed my time and really appreciate the opportunity I had to play for the Longhorns, but my lifelong dream has been to play in the NFL and to have a chance to support my family. I'll definitely miss everyone at Texas and will always pull for the Longhorns, but I'm ready to put all of my energy into preparing for my future and getting ready to work out for NFL scouts."

04/29/2013 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: TOP 10 UNDRAFTED UNDERCLASSMEN: 10. DT Brandon Moore, Texas (6-5, 317, 5.27)...A surprise early entry, Moore stated his dreams to play in the NFL as his main reason for leaving Texas after only one season in Austin. He transferred from East Mississippi Community College and started five games for the Longhorns, but a 2012 neck injury might have been a strong factor as to why he went undrafted. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
